What length is ideal, ok, silly in different age brackets in your opinion?


As you can tell I have a bit of time in my hands

Where's everyone?

lol marina - strange thread!!! well personally I dont like seeing older females 50/60's with long hair - doesnt suit them

not really much else I can add lol

Have wondered this myself as I am 'getting on a bit' (over 40!!) but really like my long hair. Will be interested to hear what others think.

i have always thought that as you get older your hair should get longer.I just think it looks better.Likea bob on a wee girl,shoulder length for teenager,etc,etc.My mum is in her 50's and has always kept her hair short ( think pat butcher!) and her twin sister has hers shoulder length and I have to say my aunt looks better!

Don't think it matters about the age, just whether you still suit the style you have.

lol...........Marina you thinking of getting it shorter now you are getting on a bit? :-D

Kim from Kim and Aggie, was on tv earlier as going into the jungle this week.................well she looks awful with her long hair pulled tightly into that bun - too severe a look.............think if she got it cut shorter and bit of a wave going she would look fantastic - well maybe not fantastic lol but much better

Do you think you shouldn't have long hair past the age of 30?

I think age isn't a factor, its whether it suits you or not. Most older people with really long hair wear it up, My nans best mate is 70 odd and she has pure white long hair down to her lower back, she wears it up in a huge almost bridal style everyday. must take her ages.
